Mamma Mia is a musical based on the songs from ABBA.  The story takes place on a Greek island.  On the night before the daughters wedding, there comes a question to who her father could really be.  This is because  Shopie comes to reading about three men from her mothers past.  This story enhances love, laughter, and frienship.  Every night is a great night!

Whether it’s your first visit or your fourteenth, see the show that has the whole world coming back for more, because every time feels like the first time at MAMMA MIA!

What began in a little brick building on a busy corner in Willow Glen.. has become a South Bay tradition.

When Willow Street opened its doors in 1991, pizza entered a whole new world. Individual size pizzas made to order, cooked in a wood-fired oven with an uncommon flavor. From the beginning, Willow Street made a commitment to take food quality, and customer service to a higher level. And each day at each restaurant we raise the bar. Join us at our original location in Willow Glen, in Downtown Los Gatos or at Westgate. Wherever you go, know that you’re in for a remarkable meal.
